FROZEN SKY

October 27 - November 15, 1997
For this gallery project, the artists work directly on the walls and the floor of the gallery using the three letter acronyms which designate the identity of international airports worldwide, i.e.: LHR JFK TYO KIX etc. as an additional architectural template of the conflation of time and place.

Notes:

KIX JFK MEX SHA CAI ROM SYD ATH BER LHR SAO DUB VIE

Three letter acronyms used to designate international airports world wide An Abstraction in non-fiction terms - formal perfection - riddled with indeterminacy Points of recognition and an unseen redefinition of location A public architectural template with a conflation of time and place - serialised as a sinister conformist Corridors of solitude and isolation Transience, alienation, disposability, discontinuity Metropolitan centres - landing points - offering departures into the imaginary A suspended future, tracking through a virtual metropolis, continuous replication between movement and stasis in the suburbs of an invisible world capital.

 
Langlands & Bell stayed at the CCA Kitakyushu as professor of the Research Program during October 1 to 31.
